Brahmas fall to Indians at home
Stockdale junior receiver Isaiah Garza (12) looks for running room during the Brahmas’ 29-14 loss to Jourdanton last Friday night.
STOCKDALE -- After a big season-opening win over Cole on the road, the Stockdale Brahmas were looking for similar results at home last Friday night. Unfortunately, the visiting Jourdanton Indians had other thoughts, and skipped town with a 29-14 win over Stockdale.
The Indian scoring barrage began just two minutes into the game as Jourdanton quarterback Chase Harrison connected with Austin Borrego for a 62-yard touchdown. The extra-point attempt failed, but the Indians added a 27-yard field goal with 2:39 to play in the opening quarter, and led 9-0.
Early in the second, Harrison connected with another receiver for 27 yards and a touchdown, and then a 4-yard running touchdown with less than two minutes to play in the half gave Jourdanton a 22-0 lead at the break.
Stockdale got rolling in the third and scored its first touchdown of the game on a 21-yard run from senior Matt Valadez. The point-after attempt failed, but Stockdale was on the board in a two-possession game.
Jourdanton wasn’t finished on the night, though, and the Indians scored once more through the air at the 4:09 mark of the third quarter. The extra point was good, and the lead was 29-6.
Down but not out, the Brahmas kept fighting. Stockdale couldn’t gain any traction in the third, but did score in the fourth on a 3-yard passing play from senior quarterback Jacob Cardenas to junior receiver Isaiah Garza. Valadez ran in the 2-point conversion, and the score stood at 29-14, a mark that would prove final.
As expected, Valadez shouldered most of the load on the offensive side of things, carrying the ball 20 times for 106 yards. Gage Haley ran four times for 64 yards, and Cardenas officially had three carries for 12 yards. Cardenas completed five of 12 passing attempts for 82 yards and a touchdown. Haley was the leading receiver with two grabs for 51 yards, while Garza had two catches for 25 paces and the touchdown. Tristan Marquez caught a pass for 6 yards.
The defense played well at times, but struggled against a big Jourdanton offense. The Indians accounted for 200 yards on the ground and 159 yards through the air.
The loss drops the Brahmas to 1-1 on the year, and Stockdale will certainly have its hands full this Friday. The unbeaten Falls City Beavers head into town, following a big 36-0 win over Poth. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bobby Russell Field.
